By investing in solutions that make a positive impact on the world around us, you will be helping to protect it for future generations, a noble and rewarding action.
In days gone by, if you wanted to invest your money in ethical investments, it used to mean having to make a trade-off between your ethical principles and good investment performance. Not anymore! You can now satisfy your ethical leanings with your need for sound investment returns.
Investing for the future has taken on a new meaning in a world of climate emergency, health crisis and growing awareness of how our actions might affect current and future generations. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) concerns now underpin many ethical investment strategies, to minimise harm to the world and its people whilst also generating investment growth.
Ethical investments are ones that incorporate ethical values into the investment process, often known as sustainable and responsible investment (SRI). It gives individuals the power to allocate capital towards companies whose practices and values align with their personal beliefs.
When consumers talk about ethical investing, what they largely mean is putting their money into investments that are responsible and which support the drive for a sustainable world.
Ethical investing originally meant using 'sin screens' to weed out potential investments in industries clients wanted to avoid. This is what is known as 'negative screening', preventing investment in industries such as alcohol, tobacco, gambling, armaments etc; and enabling funds to be selected which excluded industries which investors would prefer to stay clear of.
